Yes, the screen area. Worked for me. Just slightly push until you hear that noise.

Hi!

I was finally able to get 5.1 sound using the optical out of my LM7200 except for my Wii U.

It turns out that the Wii U using LPCM which cannot be carried by an optical cable (it has to be HDMI and my amplifier is too old to support HDMI).

BTW, does anybody know the code to use for the LM7200 with the Xbox 360 Media Remote?

Have a nice day!

Nick

First fail confused.gif

Surprised in fact expecting it, which to my exlains the 'cheapness' of this tv coupled with the incredible attents of the makers to never detail the CPU's of them.

watching a live stream via FaceBook, 20 mintues in repeated message 'the browser has filled its cache...do you want to restart..." some nonense like that, --redo and rod, same 20 minutes go by and same result.

Cheap CPU and cacheing ability. Very interesting since its a one-off circumstance, but nevertheless disappointing.


Be Aware: if you buyt these novelty smart TV's make primary focus on MEMORY and CACHE'ing because for all the bells and whistles, it boils down to a dumb computer wrapped around a pretty screen, and if it does not have enough memory, it's just that, a pretty black dead blank screen.

I can understand (a bit) your point, but do you really expect a quality web browser on a Smart TV?

The PQ was pretty good except for weak blacks (Expected on an IPS display) and one other flaw which resulted in the return: terrible screen uniformity. Horrible banding and DSE (dirty screen effect) combined with the fact that the right side of the screen was slightly darker than the left.

This set had some of the worst banding/DSE I've ever seen. Every panning shot of blue sky, desert, or snow was ruined by light or dark vertical or horizontal bands. I was even able to see it in closeups of faces, etc. As long as the camera was stationary everything was fine but any kind of movement showed the issue, provided the background was light enough. If all you ever watched was live-action, it wouldn't be so bad, but I also watch a lot of cartoons and anime. Flat, brightly colored backgrounds and characters combined with a lot of panning (especially in anime) was just painful to watch. This is where one side being brighter than the other was painfully obvious as well. Furthermore, the top and bottom of the screen have "shadows" extending 1-2" into the panel.

I hoped I had just gotten a bad one, so I took my gray slides and some test material to Best Buy to check out their floor model of the 7200. Not only was it just as bad, but the darkest and lightest bands were in the exact same places on the panel. I could only assume that exchanging for the same set would have a high probability of being pointless, so I ended up exchanging for a Sony 60EX645, whose floor model at least had reasonable banding and uniformity (few edge-lits are completely free from this issue). I've had it a few days and am working on calibration. It's too early to say if it will be any better overall. Buying a TV over the past few months has been the most unpleasant purchasing experience I've ever had because every single one I've tried has had some overt, visible or audible defect.. Buying a car and my house was far less annoying.

Interesting. I did the opposite. I left the 60EX645 and came to this set. I do see the "DSE" as you call it, but I believe this is present on passive 3D sets in general. I never notice it unless there is a very particular circumstance like a bright scene (usually white) which is also panning. My screen uniformity is great, especially after getting a few weeks of break in with the set. The quality of the 3D cannot be beat. I am actually enjoying watching 3D again after coming from an Active 3D set. (Sony NX720)

On the subject of removing the clouding with the following:

"Just gently press the screen in the lower corners of the TV. You will hear and feel a small pop. It will clear up any clouding you7 have in the corners."

I had some clouding bottom right and left, not too bad and I v-e-r-y gently pressed the screen corners with a cloth and yes it really does work, I used a cloth and pressed very gently, no way enough to damage it and the click or pop just happened, now there really is no clouding..... thanks to all for this smile.gif

Wasn't that more of a flashlighting/bleed thing?
post #578 of 731
Well I'm not sure how to describe it other than the lower right and left corners havelight coming from the back of the screen. i found it very distracting and was on the verge of returning the tv. i read on here about pressing the lower corners of the screan to remove the light in the corners. it worked very well and it is still sitting in my livingroom and it's still working great.

I'm having a serious HDMI problem and I think it might be related to this TV. The problem I'm experiencing is random signal loss during blu ray movies. Here is a list of fixes I've tried and observations:
1. It only happens during blu ray movies. DVD movies and video games play uninterrupted
2. It usually happens 2 or 3 times at random parts of a given movie. I get the "no signal screen" for 2 or 3 seconds
3. The sound continues during the signal loss
4. I cannot reproduce the effect even if I rewind. I have to just wait for it to happen.
5. I tried replacing the Hdmi cables
6. I tried replacing the blu ray player
7. I made sure all software was updated
8. I tried using different Hdmi ports on the TV
9. I tried ARC on
10. I tried ARC off
11. I tried Simplink on and off
12. I tried Hdmi control on and off on blu ray player
13. I tried Hdmi control on and off on my receiver
14. I tried passthrough on and off on my receiver
15. I've tried changing and adjusting every setting I can think of that relates to blu ray play back
16. I tried all the different handshake methods suggested on the Internet (unplugging each component, resetting and turning on in the proper order)
Nothing is working and I'm beyond frustrated at this point. Has anybody else experienced this problem with this set? If so I would like to know. Give me a fix and ill send you a gift card for a steak dinner! Lol

Yes, do this:
Blu-Ray ---(HDMI)---> TV

Before that though, quick verification. I'm confused about the sound thing....:

You're doing this, right?:
Blu-Ray ---(HDMI)---> Receiver ---(HDMI)---> TV

But are you also doing this?
Blu-Ray ---(HDMI)---> Receiver ---(HDMI)---> TV
|
+---(sound via some other cable)--->Receiver

?

I brought my Vizio out of my bedroom and swapped it with my LG and surprise- no more signal loss. So it looks like my LG TV has some Hdmi issues. Either that or there's some compatability issues with my Sony receiver and my TV which I hope isn't the case. Anyway, I called bestbuy and a new Hdmi board is on the way. Hopefully this solves my problem once and for all.
post #583 of 731
does anyone know the official word on whether this TV is discontinued?
on the LG site it's not listed as discontinued

on bestbuy it's listed as coming soon
HH gregg discontinued
ABT electronics backordered 2-4 weeks
post #584 of 731
Anybody?
post #585 of 731
Try contacting LG support to see what they say.

New firmware was released last night.
post #586 of 731
Can I assume that the 7200 does not support FlashPlayer? Trying to watch live streaming movies on movies2k.com with no luck. I can get them on my computer but not the TV. I am going to hook up the TV as a computer monitor to get new movies if I can't get the TV to play them.

The manager of my local Best Buy said, "I'm showing an out of stock date of June of this year." Not sure what that means, but he said he still had two of them.
post #588 of 731
I got this TV Mid Feb and I'm glad I did. It's simply amazing!! It's a shame because like others have said it's no longer available. And of course now that it's been more then 30 days since I got mine it's on sale at Best Buy for $1,299.99 and coming soon. Good luck!!

It's showing as "delivery to most areas" to me. That's pretty much what it always said I thought. (It also says "free shipping", but that never changes on any TV IIRC).
post #591 of 731
I'm in Houston and called a few stores around me. Looks like each store possibly have about 1 or 2 on hand. Have one on hold to pickup later.

Does the 7200 come with it's own optical digital audio cable?
post #593 of 731

Just bought it tonight at Best Buy.
Originally I was told it would be delivered to my Home this Tuesday, March 26 2013.
At checkout they informed me that I had to pick it up any where from Wednesday to Friday.

I returned a Samsung UN55ES6500F earlier.
The CE Dimming in all modes accept Movie, green ghosting of bodies in dark scenes, and light bleeding, could not be tolerated.

I understand that I may see light bleeding on this LG model, but I'm glad to see that after reading this entire thread, I'm the only person to use the words "green ghosting".

Does Amazon Prime Video have an app on this TV?
post #596 of 731
Bought one this morning and picked it up this afternoon. Once the price dropped I knew I was going to jump even though I'm not quite ready to move into my new place yet, so I likely won't get to explore it too much for another few weeks. May plug it in and feed it something so I can break it in enough to schedule my free calibration for my Silver Rewards status.

Is the screen really that reflective?
I returned a plasma because of screen reflection.
The LED Samsung I also returned, due to green ghosting, had a perfect matte screen that did well in my environment.

Also, I'm not interested in the magic remote.
What LG model TV has a normal remote that would work with this TV?

I think this may work:
https://www.encompassparts.com/item/9184493/LG/AKB73615313/Remote_Control


EDIT:
TV will be at Best Buy tomorrow to pick up.
I think I made a mistake, the screen may be too reflective. looked fine in store.
The reviews on http://lcdtvbuyingguide.com/lg-lcd-tv/lg-lcd.html for the LM 7600 and 8600 are disappointed in the reflective screen.

I guess the LM7200 is comparable to the LM8600?
